For my workout this morning, I did a HIIT session which was AWESOME! I started out warming up on the treadmill at 10% incline and 4.4mph. After that, I started my intervals in which I did 60 seconds of kettle ball squats alternating arm raises with the 20lbs kettle ball below. The first four intervals I did I alternated arms the whole time and then I changed to both arms while doing squats. Let me tell you that will get your heart rate up!! Woo hoo. I did the intervals - 1 min kettle ball squats, 2 minutes incline walking for 30 additional minutes. Burned a total of 400 calories! Not bad for 40 mins.
At lunch I went back to the gym for the first time in a long, long, time (well long time over lunch). Everyone was super shocked by my hair (I DO look like I am twelve in my gym clothes - I am going to have to wear hats to keep my bad ass image - ha ha ha) but I got a good workout in. I did chest - 5 sets of flat bench at 80lbs (yeah, not good - way less than normal), 4 sets of incline dumbbells with 30lbs each and cable flyes with 60 lbs.
While I was weak, it felt great to be back in there! If you don't know what a kettle ball is or use one currently, here is a pic of the 20lb one I have (purchased at Target):
More later...check back often - I told Power Authority I would post more often if he promised to comment more often!
